The epa has destroyed more peoples lives and legit businesses than the wars did. I wish they were gone, but that will never happen. It was a stupid thing to have ever been allowed to start up!

Well, I stand partially corrected. Fox finally put up a few seconds of video shot from obviously many miles away. Considering hpw impressive it could have been captured rather a let down.

BIG BLEVE Explosion from train derailment.

This MIGHT be more impressive but I can't view it, not being a Facebook member (and not about to become one just to view a video.)
Juab county Sheriff video of BLEVE

Facebook just pisses me off. Have from the start.

There is a video on you-tube that is a different one!


https://youtu.be/r2qcwfIWfNw

This should be the link. --- looks like several more on there. To find it go to you-tube and type in train derailment in Utah, and they come up as new videos! ---Just found them.

Apocalypse Where? Another Looming Digital Disaster.
This is getting silly. As if Y2K didn't teach anything to engineers. Now we've got another full digital counter rollover event which is predicted to occur
Saturday April 6th 2019.... uh like NOW.
This one on the GPS navigation system.

So what will happen? Probably nothing. Happened before already. But last time was in 1999... when there were very few GPS receivers around. Now they are everywhere. How each unit will handle the 11111111111111111 to 00000000000000000 rollover will vary from receiver to receiver, depending on software. Damn silly engineers!

Hackaday article


OMG my tablet clock is off by 1.6 seconds!

TIME.IS
I could really give a 😨 timewise. But applied to navigation that could be 0.463 miles or 2,444.444 feet. Again no biggie if you're walking.... but potentially embarassing for an autopilot.....

Our Garmin gps is off by a quarter of a mile every day!---We went to Ia. a few years ago and the thing went nuts, got us lost and we now just use it to see how far off it is !! ---NOT something you want to depend on! --- Put any address on this road in gps units and all of them send you here to our house,--NOT to the numbers that people put in! --- Have had some upset people stopping in only to find out its the wrong place!

Certainly a different world....

I was working on a schematic using "QuickCopper" on my Android tablet when I noticed a problem. I had wrong part number on a transistor. Guy who designed circuit in schematic lives in Salt Lake and doesn't have a phone at moment. But he's friends with another I'm best buds with. So... attach original and new schematic to email message to best bud and request he ckeck with designer over correct part next time he sees him....

I get back message he is in FL, but will check when he gets back.
Suddenly hits me that I sent two schematics and a message nearly 3,000 miles in under a minute.... and it's no big deal.

Yup, certainly a different world.

Ya, AND just think what a field day third world terrorists are going to have when the take over our country!-- Electronics, communications, etc. all will be in their control! --- Sad too that we came so far with the hi-tech. stuff and now they just walk in an take over! ---- just my opinion, but that's what I see shaping up right now!

In todays world we rely too much on hi-speed communications , ( it's became a part of our lives), and when it's taken over by them, we will be screwed!

Rscipe corner....
Low fat pan shepards pie.

In large deep frying pan with lid

mince two cloves garlic and one small onion
saute garlic and half onion in splash olive oil.
add two pounds ground turkey, remainder of onion, a pinch of sage, 1/4 teaspoon thyme and 1/4 teaspoon cummin. cook mix, stiring until fully cooked. Add drained can sliced or diced carrots and stir. Top with one pound package frozen broccoli florettes.

Thouroughly Mix three cups flour, 3 table spoons shortening or olive oil, 3 tablespoons sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoon salt and 3 teaspoons baking powder. Add liquid from carrots and just enough water to make wet sticky dough.

Spread dough mix atop mix in pan. reduce heat to lowest and cover pan.
(Sprinkle top with parsley flakes and paprika for color)

Cooking time will vary with total moisture, but by average around 40 minutes. Meal is ready when knife or toothpick comes out clean when poked in top biscuit mix.

Variations: vegetables of choice, grated cheese of choice. Works well with parmisan, asiago, gouda etc. Some like adding creme of mushroom soup or subbing mashed potatoes for biscut mix.

This is a variation of a dish my mother used to make using hamburger.... which was certainly NOT low fat.

The biscuit topping is a wetter version of cowboy biscuits she learned from mother in law in the 1940s. Basic rule: to each cup of flour add 1 tab sugar, 1 tab shortening, 1/2 t salt and 1 t baking powder. ~1/2 cup water. Cut shortening into flour, add sugar, salt and baking powder. Add wster while mixing to make sticky drop biscuits. Preheat oven to 375f. Oil còoking sheet and drop 3-4 tablespoon lumps of dough on sheet. Bske 30-35 minutes until peaks brown. Kids love them in winter with hot chocolate.

Yeah, I know I'm a barbarian....
